5 reasons I still use a big, heavy desktop that sits in one room while everyone else is going mobile

It’s 2018, and I still use a desktop. In fact, I actively prefer using a desktop over a laptop. It sounds ridiculous, but desktops make more sense than a laptop for a lot of people.

Thing is, though, powerful laptops don’t really offer the best of both worlds. They’re often relatively heavy and large, and while… Read More
